find a string within a variable string

find a string within a variable string

find a string within a variable string

how do I find a string within a variable string?
I think that's the question I want to ask? The length of my variable string will vary and I want to find 3 letters within the variable string, each time I check they could be in a different location within the variable string.

variable string = "this is my variable string sentence this time"

how do I check to see if var is in the variable string?

thank you smiler44

RE: find a string within a variable string

InStr(string1, string2)

Return where in string1, string2 is. If string2 is not in string1 it returns 0.
